Contour T-30/60

Tray Packer

Enhanced Productivity through the Power of Innovation

Contour tray packers are available as stand-alone units or fully integrated systems with a Contour shrink wrapper, for tray or pad applications. These versatile systems offer exceptional performance and the best finished package appearance and durability available.

Productivity is further enhanced with the addition of our patented Smartrak® II infeed system which eliminates product bridging and removes the gaps that compromise pack pattern accuracy and continuous product flow.

  • Speeds:
    • T-30: up to 30 cycles per minute
    • T-60: up to 60 cycles per minute
  • Stand alone continuous motion tray packer or integrated with a shrink wrapper
  • Simple and repeatable changeovers

Eliminates soft bottle bridging and removes gaps to ensure pack pattern accuracy and continuous product flow.

  • Modulated conveyor speeds control product surge and aid product flow
  • Tool-less clamps and pinned lane guide adjustments for stable operation and quick, accurate changeovers
  • Single clamp design at each cross member quickly locks in multiple lanes
SmarTrak

Fast, repeatable changeover feature offers multiple enhancements.

Changeover time – significantly reduces time to less than 5 minutes (time of changeover is dependent on extent of changeover)

Repeatability – rail positions are recipe-driven and locked in place to within +/- 1/32″

Flexibility – ability to place lanes where desired as opposed to centerline or fixed side adjustments and more customer options for generating product-specific recipes

Durability – infeed rail’s holding force can withstand high product pressure

Ergonomics – minimizing manual adjustments maximizes efficiency and promotes safety in the work environment

Variable Path Metering

Innovations to our patented Slipstream™ pinless metering system incorporate variable path registration bar technology and slip sheet technology.

  • Gently groups and meters products into the machine
  • Dynamic variable path motion registers products with less pressure and interruption to product flow

Slipstream™ MS Mid-Speed Pinless Metering

Offers highly accurate product registration for slower speed applications.

  • Provides slip sheet grouping of pack patterns for tray packing
  • Run bottled, cartoned, canned and other products without the use of tampers or escapement pins
  • Tool-less changeovers and preprogrammed settings increase productivity
